Producer Info: 

From a small start on the outskirts of Spilimbergo, the Fantinel family have developed over four decades to be a significant and admired producer of the gorgeous whites (Friulano, Pinot Grigio, & Verduzzo) and lighter reds (like Refosco and Merlot) of Friuli – wines which are catching on so fast here.

Tasting note:

No wonder this juicy and lively white is catching on – with its zesty melon and citrus fruits and minerally, mouthfilling flavours. So much an ideal white, with characters which seem to be a combo of Riesling, Traminer and Pinot Grigio – a multi-uses white. This is catching on in Oz!
